😍2016 Centennial Gold Mercury Dime😍

in #hive-136819 β€’ 7 months ago (edited)

The Winged Liberty Head dime, commonly referred to as the Mercury Dime, is one of the beloved coin design of US Constitutional silver.

It is a favorite of many silver stackers, as it is mine.

So when the United States Mint released a gold version of the Winged Liberty Head dime, coin enthusiasts and stackers alike were pleased, as I was!

I am like you: I love constitutional silver and I love the Mercury dimes, but, unlike you, I don't own a gold Mercury dime. Take care, my friend!

There is a listing here on ebay:

As the name suggests, it is the 100th anniversary commemorative of the Mercury Dime. I get the silver Merc Dime as often as I could myself.
Have a great day, my friend @ronaldoavelino, take careπŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™

When you are 90 years old and have to sort your 'Mercury' dimes by a Coinstar machine...

Please put your bifocals on and be careful to check the Eject tray.
Or I'll have to come buy after you and check it myself.

Are online dealers for precious metals available to you there? This Centennial Gold Mercury Dime was direct from the US Mint, I have a subscription from them. So when the other two gold coins in this series came out, it was automatically informed and the payment was taken out from my account. I know that you have the Royal Scandinavian Mint. And there is a gold coin I remember seeing on youtube, the 2000 Norway 1500Kr Gold Proof "Millennium" I think that you would easily find in there, and also the 1500Kr Gold Proof "Nobel Peace Prize"which people were raving about because of the design of the coin.
It was so hectic for me yesterday, and I had to go straight to my usual lap swim in the evening, I was not able to come back here until this morning. Thank you for commenting first on this article, my dearest! I love being able to say hello to you every day, sweet @saffisara. Here is hoping you had a wonderful day, and that it goes on to the evening! Take care πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™ and lots of love πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’‹.

Pretty damn sexy! I have some regular ones, but no gold!

How I wish I had just more than one. This was the first one issued of the three coins in the series. I am just so glad that I was able to snag one when it was first issued directly from the US Mint. They are still available from the secondary market. I appreciate you stopping by!
Have a terrific day, my friend @enginewitty, and take care πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™

@silversaver888...Stunning, just stunning!!!! If I were to pick two of my US coin favorites, they would be the Morgan Dollar and the Mercury Dime!πŸ˜€
Most of the circulated Mercury dimes I have, because of the high relief wear down some of the very fine details....
Now to release this in .9999 for collectors.....Wow!
Very nice touch with the slider, to get a step by step look!!!!!
Where is my pen....I need to put this one on my list!!πŸ€—
Thanks for sharing this my friend, and enjoy your day!!πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ€—

I still can recall the excitement around this coin. And the US Mint website crashed because there were so many of us scrambling to get the coin, hahaha. What fun!!!! But as always and after the hype... They are readily available from the secondary market, even APmex has them too. I got this one from the US Mint, as well as the succeeding two other coins in the Centennia GOld series. I believe that this is a gold coin worth having, despite the high premium on it. The Mercury dime is a loved design. The others in the series are Gold Standing Liberty and Gold Walking Liberty. I am lucky to have all three.
Have a wonderful day, my friend @silvetop, and take care πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™

I have two Mercury dimes I put in bezels and made earrings out of. I need 2 of these gold ones for the same purpose, lol! I like to wear my silver and gold! That's awesome you have one of these! Thanks for sharing sis and have a lovely evening. Many hugs and kisses to you!πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ’‹πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸŒΉπŸ˜Ž

Wearing your stack is the way to go, sis @elizabethbit. O think that I recall those pair of silver Merc Earrings. It was one of your first articles! And that was when we became friends. So from now one, our friendship commemorative coin will be the Mercury Dime! How cool is that!!!!
Have a beautiful ay, my sweetest sis, @elizabethbit, lots of love and take care πŸ₯°πŸŒΊπŸ€™
